There is an idol of goddess Akilandeswari, who is the same as Parvati. The mythological tales say that goddess Parvati resided in the jambu forest and made linga in the river Cauvery to please Shiva. So, he gave darshan to her at last and she took lessons from the lord. So, both the idols are lying face to face like a student-teacher pose. Worship and prayers take place in the enclosure called Garba Graha. Aarti to the deity is offered twice a day. The priest adorns female attire just like Parvati and prays before Lord Shiva. The devotees visit this temple for happiness and prosperity in their lives. More than 50 people are fed in the Jambukeswarar temple daily under the chief minister’s food donation scheme. The devotees also offer a lot of donations to this temple.
Jambukeswarar temple open at 05:30 AM to 01:00 PM and then 03:00 PM to 08:30 PM
